Greenville WR Wants Playing Time

Setting the national record for receptions in a year simply shows the type of talent in Greenville (S.C.) wide receiver LaMarckus Boswell.

The 6-foot, 165 pounder made 131 receptions for 2091 yards and 25 touchdowns on a team where the star running back ran for over 2000 yards as well. So far, Boswell is sitting on one offer.

"Everything is going alright. Kentucky is the only school that offered, but everybody is writing me right now," says Boswell. "I like Oklahoma, Miami, North Carolina, South Carolina, pretty much everybody. I just want to take my visits first and wait until the season to decide."

Thus far Boswell has only visited Kentucky, Alabama, and Pittsburgh for their summer camps last year and plans to make a return trip to each this year. The biggest concern for Boswell is with his team as starting quarterback Jordan Sorrells and running back Travil Jamison both signed with a college in February.

"We have to find a new quarterback and a new running back. We have a quarterback in Matt Lentz; he has a strong arm and he can run the ball. If they can get me the ball, I just see the field real good, and I can get off the press. Basically they have to double-team and triple-team me, and if they don't I'll get the ball."

As for recruiting, the primary objective is simple for Boswell. "It's going to be playing time. Whoever lets me come in and play my first year, that's what I'm looking at. I want to play.

"Kentucky is the only school that offered me, and they are going to let me play, and they said I can play both basketball and football." Top Stories
